On Super Tuesday, American Bridge 21st Century highlights the GOP Senate 2016ers support for Donald Trump. Whether it’s pledging their support, finding Trump entertaining, or scoring some campaign cash through Trump’s face, the GOP has not just embraced the Republican front-runner — they’ve defined what it means to be the #PartyOfTrump.
“Today wouldn’t be complete without remembering the 2016 Senate GOPers and their support of the GOP front-runner. The #PartyOfTrump has not only supported, but cashed in on Trump’s image despite his hateful and incendiary rhetoric,” said American Bridge 21st Century Press Secretary Katie Lewallen. “The GOP Senators seeking re-election and Congressman Joe Heck have proudly worn the Tea Party banner, winning election or reelection in 2010, and now they’re joining forces to spread their divisive policies and message from the Silver State to the Granite State.”
After Trump won the Nevada Caucus, Nevada Senate candidate Joe Heck excitedly tweeted that it was a “heck of a night.” Previously, Heck has also agreed that Trump’s stance against birthright citizenship should “be part of the discussion.”
North Carolina Senator Richard Burr said that he would be “delighted” if Trump wins the nomination: “Donald Trump has done a tremendous job. I think Donald Trump has brought a level of passion to running for office that I’m delighted to see.”
